I was actually just thinking about that a couple of minutes ago. A slow simmer is actually better than boiling BUT sometimes you just do not have the time to simmer for a couple of hours! Either way, it works just fine and I hope you love your soup.

It is mighty cold here right now (windchill -51F) so soup sounds sooooo good. :)

thats what I meant its been simmering for a couple hours now. The flavor is starting to come out now think i'll go another hour. Wow thats cold where are you?

I did a crock pot pork butt and made some tortillas and had little sandwiches with some enchilada sauce.

Apple, celery and dried cranberry salad.

Now I am bloated and gassy, first raw apple in three months.

Should have had soup. :(

Oh, sorry. I hope I didn't offend you! When it comes to cooking I am rather eager when making comments. How was your soup? Delicious, I bet! :)

Yes, it is cold. We live in northern Alberta.

I'm thawing and heating (microwaving) leftover homemade clam chowder with homemade buckwheat corn (yeast) bread. Our dinner will match the weather, which was 6-8 inches of snow fall today and a high of 29 F. That's not typical Seattle weather, but I love walking in the snow. Just wish I had some cross country skies, like everyone else around here.

Leftovers tonight, butternut squash soup and some humus. However, I'm thinking stovetop popcorn or a turkey hotdog. Simple night :)

Arrived home late this evening, had grilled chicken apple brats with nachos. I figured the salsa and apple counted as a fruit and veg!

Mushroom risotto, veal marsala and grilled baby eggplant with goat cheese balsamic. yum.

Now back in the kitchen and time to cook my Sauerbraten and kartoffelklossee for tomorrow. The meat has been soaking all week and I cook tonight and then fridge overnight making it easier to slice tomorrow, same thing with the kartoffelklossee (potato dumplings) prepare tonight and cook tomorrow. I have to thank my DH he found me the gluten-free ginger snaps for the gravy and went 35 minutes out of his way tonight to buy me fresh gluten-free mock rye bread. Tomorrows feast is a startin.

Sounds seriously yummy!

We went to Mexico (Baha!)

We had fish tacos made from fresh grilled pompano, Mission corn tortillas (thank you Mushroom!) blackened onions and peppers with salsa, grated sharp cheddar cheese, minced jalepeno peppers, grated cabbage and salsa. That's alot going on for the tastebuds, but it was really, really good, especially with a squirt of lime.

I had an ear of roasted corn too. (Corn is in season in the deep south now.) DP remembered that his mom used to cook him frozen fishsticks and burnt fried eggs on Friday nights. He thinks I'm a really good cook. I'm really average. Tonight was a winner though. :D

I use sweet rice flour, too. Did you not like the taste or texture of yours?

I can't pinpoint it...I just did not care for it. I think texture may have had something to do with it. Of course, it's ages since I made it before so maybe my taste has changed. Perhaps I should try a different kind of flour (maybe Jules).
